|From Jamie's Philippines Pics|
We have also had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in China, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Bali. We have archived all of our travels and living experiences abroad; and if you wish, you can read about our adventures by finding the archives on the right of this page and by checking our Photo Album.
We appreciate all of our family and friends who have stayed in touch and emailed us with encouraging words throughout the year. We hope you will continue to keep us in your thoughts as we continue our adventure of living abroad teaching at an international school. For those who have stumbled upon our site, check out the "About Eric and Jamie" section on the right for more information.
Thanks for checking us out!

1st Week Over!
Our first week with the students came to a close this week. I am still really happy about teaching here, and I think Jamie is slowly warming up the the younger kids. They are just so well behaved, which is refreshing. The rowdiest student is one which literally may be working on another assignment or reading silently rather than working on your assignment. All you have to do is begin to walk over to their desk and they will immediately get back on task.
I think we are going out tonight with some other co-workers to play some pool and hang out. Early morning for us, so it won't be too late of a night. Hong Kong, here we come!!! I've waited 8 months for this.
